    $550 Million wasted and now we are broke again and the highways need to be fixed. I must be dumber than him for not leaving.

    If we didn't have our family's farm to operate, we would be down south.

    It is amazing how there is no reporting on the Fastrac, revenue and expenses, yet they are taking the traditional bus routes and folding them into the FastRac to muddle the waters ! sorry a little off topic, but I had to rant.

    Back in the day, all small arms were purchased by the Army and then redistributed to the other various branches of service. Just before the production end of the Army/Navy revolvers, this was changed so that each branch was funded to buy their own (approved) guns. So, the Connecticut National Guard guns were most likely bought and sent out by the Army. All this is covered in Bob Best's book on the Army and Navy model Colts.

    I just got my Colt letter on mine. It was a shipment of 36 guns on July 22, 1896 shipped to Connecticut National Guard. Factory Engraved on strap "Conn National Guard" and C154 under the stocks.
